This thread is not that odd. I was considering starting a thread to auction of my virginity, now that would be odd.(Or would it...any takers)
The authorship tag is a very interesting and it will sort out the original content. In my case it definItely gives me a better CTR but maybe my face appeals to some of the American housewifes who visit me.
If you have an established website and you are a succesful author in the real world you have no problems and there is no reason not to set up a G+ page, people will want to join your circle because you are famous and you will have an attentive audience with no effort involved. It is not who you have in your circle but who has you in their circle that is important. Just take a look at some of the celebs on G+ and you will see what I mean.
Google+ means different things to different people, in my case I love to interact with people, get advice, give advice and generally chat, if it helps to promote my website (is there evidence of this... maybe) so much the better.
I have not seen any site without articles that has an authorship that has been approved, but I have not looked that hard.
